Microsoft Windows Vista

    Here is something that I wrote tonight that I'd like to share with
    the class. This was from my Computer Forensics homework, laugh if you
    want, but the point is this will be your reality in twenty-four hours if
    your business is "gung-ho" about implementing Vista in a large push.
    Rarely do I ever speak negatively about Microsoft, but this time, I feel
    as if it truly has crossed a line. I have files on disks that I want
    that were created using Microsoft and I can't see them. Vista has pissed
    me off.

    The question was from a Thompson book and is a part of the CSSIA
    courseware. "A new version of Windows has been released. What do you
    need to do to be ready in 6 to 10 months when cases involving the new
    operating system begin happening? Include research, user groups, and
    others you need to contact. Write a one-page paper on this procedure."

    And here it is.


    Lasher, MCP, MCDST

    Computer Forensics

    Case Project 3-3


    Honorably so, Microsoft will launch Microsoft Windows Vista in
    twenty-four hours. A new system that is a mix of bugs, lack of support
    on 3rd party products from both the manufacture and Microsoft, and
    security exploits that would make the average user cringe in fear. At a
    worse case, and to complete the black hole that is Microsoft, simple
    data transfers from a CD-R are not supported for some odd reason.
    Twenty-four hours, one day. These are our present problems.

    If one were to actually attempt to scale these feats of spiting
    Microsoft's support as a Beta tester, would be the only feasible way
    that someone could actually attempt a 6 to 10 month venture into
    studying an almost completely broke product. Case problems would be
    existent even on the day of launch if someone were so enthusiastic to
    support Microsoft, so it would depend on the company. For my scenario, I
    will illustrate a day where a MCDST would actually experience "end-
    user", a user who is requesting assistance, problems.

    Microsoft may or may not push another pre-mature patch within the
    next twenty-four hours. The results would be tragic. For an end-user,
    their range of product knowledge can vary and they can be rather
    unpredictable. This is even illustrated in class. There are ranges of
    students who know more than others and it is a chaos factor. If a group
    was not properly assembled from Beta Testing to answer questions on all
    levels, then there would be a huge problem with the aforementioned
    problems, including Tech Support itself. Research groups who studied the
    products would be the Beta Testers themselves. And the user group as
    well.

    In my professional opinion as a Microsoft Certified Professional, a
    Microsoft Beta Tester, and as a Microsoft Certified Desktop Support
    Technician, Microsoft may just flop on this one. The "group" would know
    that and it would be chaos.

    At this point, all they could do is get on their knees and pray.
    Pray to God himself that he did spare them the wrath of the "end-user"
    not getting their way, or their bosses and Office 2007 not working or
    importing correctly simply causing a loss in job. The humor on the
    UseNet would probably be quite entertaining.

    This new release, which happens to now be less than 24 hours from
    launch, is a threat to the public. End-Users, if not equipped with Anti-
    Virus protection that is valid for Microsoft Windows Vista and proper
    configuration knowledge, would be at risk. Windows Vista adapts to your
    needs and wants as far as Administrator rights, but if a company were to
    also implement a computer usage policy, which is a feature that is much
    more controllable added to this version of Windows, I would see no point
    as it to just be a "case of the Mondays".

    I would not encourage a company to be gung-ho about Microsoft Windows
    Vista just yet because it is not ready. I think that any good Tech
    Support Agent and purchasers of Software truly know that. At least I
    still have faith in some people.

    ****

    Have fun, scukers.

  2. I may or may not get it. If I do, I'll give it at least a year so they can
    spit out a service pack before i buy it. Never buy software as soon as it
    comes out. It's kind of funny isn't it? You can buy cars when they are new
    and don't have to worry about the bugs getting fixed after you buy it. haha
    I know how programming goes though and it's very challenging so I can
    understand. Most end-users don't have a clue though and have surreal
    expectations from their software.

    I would have at least expected one very close Microsoft product, such as
    XP, to be able to interpret data between each other.

    Interesting Lasher... I am not sure what you are doing wrong, but I know
    that I have never had a problem accessing any data from XP... or 2000, 9x,
    or DOS or Mac for that matter. I would love to help you troubleshoot this
    issue... usually it is an NTFS issue, though files on CD do not use NTFS.

    I have been using Vista for the past sixteen months so I suppose I have a
    bit of an advantage, but really, you are attacking a foe that is not there.

    Someone brought up the car analogy so here's this: If you buy a 2006 Toyota
    do you expect to be able to use parts from your 1999 Nissan?

    Your case refers to Vista as 'a mix of bugs, lack of support on 3rd party
    products from both the manufacture and Microsoft, and security exploits that
    would make the average user cringe in fear.' I will address these points
    one at a time:

    While I am sure there are some issues, I am interested to hear what huge
    array of bugs are being refered to. Vista has been available to corporate
    clients since November 8th and in these nearly three months there are not
    even a small percentage of reported bugs that previous OS releases have
    experienced.

    Yes there are going to be some applications that will not run on Vista. You
    want to blame someone? Blame the coders who developed those apps. Well
    coded apps work, poorly coded apps will not. With one exception I have not
    run across a single program that does not work on Vista, and frankly it was
    an x86 versus x64 issue rather than a Vista issue. And yes, some vendors
    will not support Vista the day it is released, but they will catch on
    quickly. As for lack of support from Microsoft? Hardly.

    Security exploits... I have had conversations with two of the top Microsoft
    Security guys in North America in the past week and while they both agree
    that you still need to deploy anti-virus solutions, Vista is more secure
    than any previous version of Windows by far, and as secure as any OS on the
    market.

    If you want to wait until Service Pack 1 before you deploy then that is your
    perogative. If you are an IT Professional you will be doing yourself and
    your clients a great disservice by doing so. On the flipside of that you
    will be doing your competition a favour because they will gain the business
    that you are not qualified to support.

  5. I was waiting on research, data collected, or some type of reference as
    to where he came to this conclusion before commenting. And well to be
    absolutely honest, I frankly did not care to respond. I even had a
    comment in draft that echoed yours.

    I can put any of these CD's\DVD's in a Windows XP SP2 Machine and they will
    identify, read the files, and execute the files. I am running the Windows
    Vista Business Edition. When you put them in this OS, they identify either
    just the file structure, such as you can see the directories, but they are
    all blank, or you can see a single file that is a RAR or JPG file and it is
    corrupted. The CD itself, when it is in the disk-drive, shows that there
    is space allocated and space used, however Windows is acting like I just
    put a disk created in Linux in it and not showing me the files that I have
    backed up. Also, as a note, everything was ran and created in NTFS mode.
    I promise you that I'm not the only one experiencing this issue. Several
    other associates of mine are also having the exact same problem. One
    suggested that it was the UMD of the OS.

    Depends, you can put an alternator from a Ford F-150 that's a 1995 into a
    1989 Isuzu Trooper II and it be almost identical parts. First hand
    experience doing that.
